"Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband." ephesians 5:33
Even though marriage is a God-ordained institution, it is still human in terms of its execution. It takes a great deal of long-suffering, temperance, and faith along with every other fruit of the Spirit to successfully build and sustain your marriage. The Bible is clear about what God expects and despite how miserably we fail at those expectations from time to time, God never changed His mind about what He wants out of our marriages.
This message is based upon a dream I had about a married couple. There were some troubling things I observed in the dream that I had to seek Biblical counsel for understanding. It is clear; husbands are to love their wives and wives are to respect their husbands. Sometimes, those lines get blurred, but if we are children of God with hearts to please our Father, we will submit to the Word no matter what it takes.
This message is not for everyone but it is for some. Let it bless you.
